The Sustainable Student

On Monday, September 6, 2021, The Sustainable Switch announced the establishment of a new branch of their business. Since the company launched in November 2020, The Sustainable Switch team has been busy working away on a number of exciting new projects and programs for the Greater Toronto community. This new branch will be education-based and will be called The Sustainable Student. The Sustainable Student will officially launch at the end of this month and will be available exclusively through a portal on The Sustainable Switch website.

Under this educational branch of The Sustainable Switch, we aim to one day offer a series of courses, from learning strategies to sustainable marketing. However, to begin, we will be offering one course, titled University 101. The University 101 course will be optional and available to those preparing for or already enrolled in post-secondary school, whether it be college or university.

The aim of this course is to aid this generation of students in their transition from high school learning to post-secondary learning. Having experienced this transition ourselves, we know just how overwhelming it can be, and how important it is that students feel prepared and know how to handle any stressors that may arise.

Some of the learning objectives/outcomes of this course include:

  • Successfully setting and prioritizing goals
  • Creating and maintaining schedules
  • Organized note taking
  • Manage and deal with stress
  • Study more effectively
  • Solve conflicts as they arise
  • Communicate in a professional manner
  • Present in front of a group comfortably

Keep an eye out for more information in the coming weeks about the course, how to sign up, costs, and more! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
